Cuisine - French
Of course, this version of the famous soup will be different from the heavily laden butter and cream recipes of the past. For one, it will have a lot more heat for a cold soup because we've replaced the fat with chile. Note: This recipe requires advance preparation.
The famous food writer M. F. K. Fisher described this sauce as follows: 
“A peppery concoction suited to the taste of bouillabaisse, served
separately from the soup to be ladled in at the discretion of the
individual diner.”

This recipe and others can be found in the following article:

Mascarene Chile Cuisine

 

By Dave DeWitt

This intriguing dish violates at least two laws most people have concerning steak: never season it heavily and never fry it in a pan. But since the taste of this steak is so remarkable, we'll forget the rules. Three varieties of pepper are recommended, but it works just fine with just coarsely crushed black peppercorns. Varying the hot sauce used can produce peppered steaks with intriguingly different flavors. Also, experiment by using brown, red, or rose peppercorns. Wrap the black peppercorns in a cloth and crush them in a mortar with a pestle. Grinding them in a peppermill makes the pepper too fine.
Be sure to put the eggroll wrappers on a greased surface or they may tear.

Here is the version of pika from former Dutch Guiana. If you were in Bonaire, you would use either Scotch bonnets or the much milder Madame Jeanette. The Scotch bonnets will overpower the flavor of the other when cooked if you use both. I have adapted this for American kitchens.
The flavor of peppers dominates this powerful, spiced up broth. This recipe can also be used as a vegetarian stock for making other soups and stews. It is an elegant example of a first course soup that can precede any entree.

The ultimate fancy restaurant dessert is the soufflé. Who does these at home? They’re too hard to make and too fragile, right? Wrong. Remember, your BBQ is nothing more than an oven you’ve taken outdoors, whether you use charcoal, gas, or hardwood logs. If you can do it indoors, you can do it outdoors.

This dish truly amazes people. I even had a 4-star chef once bet me I couldn’t make a soufflé in a BBQ. He ended up eating one, and paying for my dinner that night, which included a soufflé that didn’t rise as high as mine. So there!
